This season has certainly been full of hearts, heels (one night only) and hoops in our family lately. Basketball season keeps us incredibly busy but we love every moment of it. We are a crazy basketball family for sure!
This kid is blessed with great coaches in his life. God has certainly put many great coaches and guys in his life to help him get better. We are sad the high school season is over, but we look forward to trying out for another season of spring and summer travel. Kyle is already hitting the weight room and gym to get ready for next season.
I know that many talk down about the next generation, but Mike and I would disagree. God is raising up a mighty generation of church leaders and worship leaders. We get to see it working so closely with the youth. Since Resurrection, we have had a Sunday night bible study. I chose Beth Moore's The Quest for our teen girls to do. The first night I had 17 young ladies show up with $12 to buy their book and to dig into God's word. I am blessed by their diligence and hard work. If you have done a Beth Moore bible study you will know that her studies are amazing but come with about 30-45 minutes of homework (for five days) between sessions. Despite these girls having busy lives with cheer, sports and school they are doing it.
I have spent my flu week laying in bed resting and planning our youth spring retreat coming up in March. Mike will do the Saturday night devotion based on Romans 12:2 and our theme for the weekend will be Be Different. I cannot wait. There is nothing like spending a weekend with God, my family, and our youth. We are also already working hard on our summer mission trip.
Thanks for checking in our family!
